Man Asks To Go To Jail

A Clayton man who called 911 claiming he needed help ended up in jail.

On New Year’s Day, authorities allege 35 year-old Michael Glenn Herring of Twin Acres Road called Johnston County 911 claiming he needed help.

When deputies arrived at the address, Herring reportedly denied dialing 911 and said he didn’t need anyone’s help.  Officers said Herring appeared to be under the influence and was acting aggressive towards lawmen.

Officers also indicated there may have been some type of domestic situation at the address.

Deputies reportedly asked Herring if they could take him to a relative’s home but he refused and continued to act aggressive towards officers. Herring stated he had rather go to jail than remain at his home.

Deputies obliged.  Herring was charged with misuse of the 911 system. He was booked into the Johnston County Jail under a $2,500 bond on the misdemeanor offense.
